  1. Morality

    But you have 'your own morality' ... dont you - your own 'code of honour' for yourself ? I agree with you about 'Divine Law / Morality ' it seems it is a projection of a human desire and need - so much so, that some claim its origin 'divine' . The problem seems to come from when we expect / want / need 'external forces' to comply with what we conceive as moral . Most individuals are well behaved , moral little 'justifiers' - in their own world .... bunch them together ( ie. 'humanity' ) - look out ! As a group we are easily capable of atrocity - mostly to each other .
  2. Tricky as you are asking for a name of the perfected self and not the process to achieve that . For me, the closest is "Fravahar." As in the sense of a 'United Fraveshi ' . Otherwise known as , in modern hermetic / western magic tradition ( Not the name of it but the 'process' ) ; achieving the knowledge and communication of your ' Holy Guardian Angel' - also a process of 'uniting' .
  3. DANG !

    The Libertarian thread I posted in, and wanted to post more in, got moved to Current Events ? I have been avoiding going there and dont want to 'sign up' just for that . But I am wondering why it got moved ? Why move a whole thread when it wasnt moved there due to the OP ? if the first few posts, especially the first is allowable in other forums , that seems to indicate subsequent posts where not . Should the whole thread be moved because subsequent posters didnt follow guidelines ? Now I guess I have posted in a forum I didnt want to go to ..... oh well, if any one tries to knock on that door - nobody home .
  4. Lotza stuff in that book works
  5. PS 'Non - dualism' is two words .
  6. I fought the law ( well, fought the State's bullshit interpretation of the law foisted upon us by the Attorney General / public prosecutor ) ... and I won !
  7. In my case I think that is because the best way to effect positive change is to trick 'the people' into thinking they came up with the solutions themselves . The other side ( the blame , going wrong stuff ) is an interesting dynamic ; Me; ' Dont do that ..... it will cause ( whatever bad results , that are glaringly obvious to me, but seem hidden to them ) . response ; " Your 'criticisms' might actually cause those bad things to happen ! " - Ooooh ... me and my 'negative vibes' !
  8. Not this again ! have I returned to DBs in a time warp ? Look you guys ... I am missing all the 'fun' of 'current events ' forum 'cause I refuse to join in just so I can avoid this stuff . Not fair ! - you are making me suffer !
  9. I could relate to what Steve said ... but due to experience ; ie. not 'spiritually philosophising ' but meeting those people that WHERE like that IN the 'war zone' . I've talked before about my past, working with refugees and torture victims and and in the Accident and Emergency ( and other ) Wards. Two cases come to mind; One an Iranian woman - sweet as pie , but then explains she is a torture victim and shows me where pieces of her had been removed (as a 'punishment' for 'wrong beliefs' ) . I asked her how she could live with the trauma and she she did it by thinking it would be a lot worse if she had been the perpetrator other than the victim . She shuddered, imagining and said; " Just think, having to live your life, knowing that you had done things like that to people ! What sort off person would that make you ? I would rather be this person that I am now . I feel sorry for the man that did this and I hope he comes to repent before God and finds forgiveness . " The second one was two events in one day ; a guy came into A&E ward that had his lower abdomen, hips and thighs run over by a road roller ! Then a woman with an ingrown toe nail that needed surgical attention . No doubt that IS painful, but this woman ! OMG one of the most complaining and difficult patients ever . The 'steam roller guy' had a few operations and I remember caring for him after wards, a fantastic patient , he actually apologised to me for 'causing so much trouble and bother ' . End of story ? Woman delayed surgery and then agreed but by then they needed to remove the toe , she did the same again and it spread to foot , the idea of removing the foot freaked her out and she delayed surgery again , then it spread to leg, the same ... yes, she actually ended up dying from originally what was an in grown toenail ! 'Steam roller guy' ? He got moved to rehab unit, so I didnt see him for a few weeks until one day at lunch time I went for a swim in the hospital pool and here he was doing laps ! "What the hell is going on ? I asked him . " Rehab . " and gave me a big grin .... yeah, his legs where kicking and he was moving along pretty good . ..... I also agree talk is cheap, especially on internet
  10. Happy Solstice wherever you are

    ... and Happy Litha everybody !
  11. Happy Solstice wherever you are

    ,.... I believe the correct term is Winter-born King .
  12. Happy Solstice wherever you are

    Oh, its not truly cold ... just a bit . It is however 'unusually' cold - unusual in that with the weather warming up, its the coldest winter in years . But a beautiful morning ; it started misty rose pink / orange , then went to misty yellow orange , now the sun is up and slanting rays through the silver mist and the front paddock has a light sprinkling of sparkly frost . And ..... the solstice is my birthday , so far I have got 2 pair of thick woolly socks , 3 succulents in pots and a nicely arranged bunch of, not flowers but various coloured oyster mushrooms . And my present to myself ? - today I shall finish the last cupboard of my new 'rustic' cabin kitchen remodel ..... finally got rid of those horrible particle board shelves and mouldy old louvred doors that have been bugging me for 30 years ! Now the shelves are sealed glossy white cyprus and the doors Borneo teak with 'rustic' external hinges and handles .
  13. I have that 'awareness' and experience . Now, and for some time , I have pain everyday, for most of the day , but I certainly dont feel like I am suffering because of it . Yesterday, this woman visited me , she went on and on and on Even when I tried to talk, she would pick a subject, phrase or even word from my conversation, and use that to branch off into , yet another gossipy monologue Now that was suffering !
  14. Flower in the shape of a woman

    Naaahhhh ! Them aint flowers . Thats the fruit ! The flowers look like this ; ..... its a fly trap ..... and I dont mean a zipper Stop Plucking 'Penis Plant', Says Cambodian Government
  15. Lack of breakfast ?
  16. Being at the forefront of fashion , I regret to inform you that I am currently suffering ' non-duality sickness' .
  17. I just find it such a weird word ; Pretty ; " of a person, especially a woman or child) attractive in a delicate way without being truly beautiful. " ( - just a bit beautiful ... but not truly beautiful ) " an attractive thing, especially a trinket. " ( 'arm candy ' ) Let's just call them 'nice girls' ..... Oh ! hang on a minute ; nice (adj.) late 13c., "foolish, ignorant, frivolous, senseless," from Old French nice (12c.) "careless, clumsy; weak; poor, needy; simple, stupid, silly, foolish," from Latin nescius "ignorant, unaware," literally "not-knowing," from ne- "not" (from PIE root *ne- "not") + stem of scire "to know" (see science). "The sense development has been extraordinary, even for an adj." [Weekley] -- from "timid, faint-hearted" (pre-1300); to "fussy, fastidious" (late 14c.); to "dainty, delicate" (c. 1400); to "precise, careful" (1500s, preserved in such terms as a nice distinction and nice and early); to "agreeable, delightful" (1769); to "kind, thoughtful" (1830).
